BMC Software made its latest move towards software-as-a-service on Tuesday by taking its Remedy IT management suite to the cloud.
BMC, which provides IT management and automation software, has been moving its products to the cloud. Its customers are keeping their on-premise software suites, but expanding their licensed seats via SaaS.
Paul Avenant, vice president of products, said BMC's customers "are looking for more flexibility" and eyeing SaaS as an option to expand. In this scenario, a BMC customer uses the on-premise software, but adds additional licences via the SaaS model. Ultimately, BMC expects 15 to 20 percent of its customers to be on a SaaS model in three years. That projection lines up with Gartner estimates.
